This data file includes the ancestry of Michael Barren Clegg with special emphasis on the West Virginia families of Brannon, Campbell, Cromwell, Deboy, Early, Haverty, Hill, Kincaid, Lewis, Looman, Naylor, Stallman, Taylor and Vaughn. In addition to my focus on my West Virginia heritage I have been gathering information on many other of my families from a variety of states. Much of this new data comes from what is available on Ancestry, Family Search, and Find-A-Grave and is only as good as that which was submitted by the myriad persons who have contributed. I have verified some of it, but not have fact checked all of it. Do your own research to verify anything you are unsure of.

The information contained in this file is the work of Michael B. Clegg and others and includes what I have done so far (as of December 2023). My sources include, but arenít limited to, living persons, secondary sources, original documents and online resources. I am neither related to everyone in this database, nor am I a chief compiler on some of the families included herein.

A word about searching this database: Please be creative in the spelling of names as I have used standardization in some cases and in other cases used the name as it was spelled on the document. Persons of Afro-American descent are noted in the index as having the post-nomials col., mul., or slave after the surname. These labels were found in the sources for these individuals and are not intended to mean anything else other than as designators to identify that person from another.

I will be updating as time permits and correcting any errors that are submitted for consideration by you, the viewers of this file. Corrections and additions may be sent to or the Genealogy Center at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, IN.
